ABSTRACT

Automated Drug Tracking Information System is a set of computer programs that obtains the supplies of drugs, distribute the drugs and monitors the inventory control of the drugs. The pharmaceutical department of University of Nigerian Teaching Hospital (UNTH), Enugu is used as a case study. I was motivated to embark on this research because the department uses manual method to operate drugs related operations, which lacks good storage system for drugs recording. The system tends to be complex and the method of tracking expired drug is poor. The good approach to this problem is to involve the use of computer by designing an information system. The objectives are to develop a platform for real time automated drug tracking information system, to build a database structure used to store information about drug using SQLite database, design a platform that helps to order for require drugs, create a module for taking good stock of drugs, create a platform that help to track dispensary of expired drugs. This research was realized through the adoption of primary and secondary sources of data collection which includes interview, observation, questionnaire, the internet and journals. The system was developed using Java for designing and implementation of the program system to enable accurate record keeping of drug to track expired drug. This guarantees the people the right to good health care and ensures that drugs received are genuine and safe
